LOT should join Oneworld or SkyTeam sooner than later. There are too many Star Alliance airlines in Europe, and United only works with Lufthansa. They don't even get along with Singapore Airlines or Turkish Airlines, which both fly to Newark (Turkish next year) without any code-sharing or cooperation from United. Same story there with LOT. It's absurd. Austrian is dying (getting killed
) in front of our eyes with the blessing of LH, for the benefit of the mother vampire and LX. Air Berlin and Malev are urban legends now, so Oneworld has a massive void in continental Europe, stretching from London to Moscow. Heathrow is maxed out, Finnair is in the North Pole, and Iberia is useless for anything other than Europe - South America. CSA has been the definition of "the living dead" for years, and will most likely stay that way (in its best case scenario). This is a great opportunity for LO.
I couldn’t agree more with you! It’s the perfect opportunity for LOT with the holes being created in and around Central Europe. The question is how much would it cost for LOT to leave SA? Tens or hundreds of millions of US$$$, something LOT really doesn’t have much. If LOT would go with Oneworld and work with American Airlines it could possibly evenly split KRK and open up more flights to JFK and other places. Again problem is money and aircraft issues.
